For Future Possible: Imagining Madison, we invited a group of artists, architects, and designers who know and love the city to envision it 75 years from now.  

In this Wisconsin Academy Talk we explore how tools like scenario-building, storytelling, and the arts can help us better envision our role in prospective responses to climate change.

Panelists include:

Kimberly Blaeser, the Wisconsin Poet Laureate

Wisconsin Poet Laureate Kimberly Blaeser's connection with Wisconsin is rooted in a spiritual engagement with place.

LOGJAM features sculpture and prints by​ three artists for whom wood--from saplings and underbrush to massive old-growth stumps--is a primary material.
